I am struggling for a couple of times to put a good question for discussion. I need help to understand what is wrong with the this questions?

  • I didn't vote on that question yet, but at a cursory glance you might want to give a read to idownvotedbecau.se/noattempt – gnat Nov 28 '17 at 20:36

    @gnat read that. AFAIK the audience and intent of the SE is different from SO, the intent is to understand concepts which would help in writing good code. Asking for correcting the given code is better for codereview imo. – CodeYogi Nov 28 '17 at 21:56
  • well if you prefer guidance specifically tailored for this site here is one: Why is research important? – gnat Nov 28 '17 at 21:58
  • @gnat I think there is some serious confusion between community members, I updated my question with my findings and one the member literally blamed me for some trick and deleted his answer. Also, I don't know for what reasons I am receiving continuous downvote. Please keep in mind I have been a member for a long time and have asked well received questions in the past. I think you need to chime in. – CodeYogi Nov 29 '17 at 9:21
  • this is not a confusion but well known thing - after the question is answered the options to edit it get narrower, specifically editors need to keep an eye on answers and avoid invalidating these – gnat Nov 29 '17 at 9:43
  • @gnat so, I ideally I should ask new question then? – CodeYogi Nov 29 '17 at 9:44
  • if you can't edit into better shape without invalidating answers, probably yes. Though in this particular case since the answer is deleted you aren't bound by that, at least until someone else posts an answer – gnat Nov 29 '17 at 9:46

    @CodeYogi: What might be tripping you up is that the StackExchange Q&A format is not suited for discussions. There is no room for a back-and-forth exchange between users, but only for questions that can be answered with a few paragraphs of text. – Bart van Ingen Schenau Nov 29 '17 at 12:51
